The Gasparilla parade might be cancelled but there are still some ways to celebrate in Tampa.
Even after a year, we are still very concerned with health and safety amid the Coronavirus Pandemic. The 2021 Gasparilla Distance Classic Race has already been postponed and has been moved to May 8 and 9 but we just got word that it is going virtual. No need to worry! The City of Tampa will still allow the closure of Bayshore Blvd. for the weekend’s runs. Registered participants can still run their races, virtually. This is probably my favorite part of the event and I’m glad everyone will still be able to run the same path, just with a smaller crowd and social distancing.
The 8 On Your Side Health & Fitness Expo will also still happen on May 7 and 8 at the Tampa Convention Center’s East Hall. Participants can pick up their packet at the expo.
